I hear the argument about how much people say that they believe that their vote doesn’t matter, but that couldn't be further from the truth. We hear all about the national elections and then sometimes, we’ll hear about a candidate that bubbles to the top and makes the national news. Most of the time, the … Continue reading How Much Does Your Vote Matter?
No, this isn’t another “me too” story. It’s an OMG, I’m so over the nonsense that is called news media! Unless it’s something that is breaking, like someone attempting to ram the security perimeter at NSA’s headquarters in Maryland or another, horrible school shooting, every single channel is filled with nothing but a lot of … Continue reading I’ve Been Quiet for Too Long
Can’t remember the last time I saw a gaggle of reporters and news outlets overreact to a video. Wait, now that I think about it, they tend to overreact about a lot of things. There’s a missing plane! Let’s break out the super graphics and run with it non-stop until the ratings decline. A terrorist … Continue reading Follow the Money, Silly!

Hmmm, I found it funny that this “comedian” thought the whole episode was hysterical when said “comedian” did the video shoot. Yes, it was … Continue reading A Story I Heard About, Hysterical
I think some of us forget that we are all a part of the human race and reside in this great country. Now, that does not mean that we have to agree all of the time, that would be boring, but we should be civil with each other. I have spent the last few months … Continue reading Who Are We?

Remember at the … Continue reading Did She Not Inspire You?
